Masters of Russian impressionism
- Until May 15; Wed, Fri-Sun: 11 am - 7 pm, Thu: 1 pm - 9 pm, Mon-Tue: days off
- Arkhip Kuindzhi Memorial Apartment-Museum
- 300 rubles (free for students)
Impressionism didn’t take so well in Russia: there wasn’t a solid community of painters like there was in France, where the movement originated. However, some of the notable landscape artists did explore the breathy painting technique, making it a little more solid and materialistic, while also focusing more on the countryside instead of cityscapes. You can explore the Russian take on impressionism at the memorial museum of Arkhip Kuindzhi. Take this chance to also learn a little about the celebrated artist who was a bit of a revolutionary in his time.
- Until April 7, 11 am - 10 pm
Could this be the impressionism of our time? Just a short walk away from the Arkhip Kuindzhi Memorial Apartment-Museum, you will find the ArtMuza cluster, with a brand-new exhibition that explores the intersection of consciousness and technology. In the artworks created by the Triumvirat collective, you will find an original outlook on the future in an intricate geometry of forms and a measured color palette. What image of the days to come will you decipher in the exhibits? And how will it stand against the visions of the past created by the impressionists? These are some questions to ask your inner art historian as you stroll down the gallery halls.
